Why does the Sicoma planetary mixer have a shorter scraper blade tail than some?

The good mixing action of Sicoma’s blades allows faster and more complete cleanout; it simply does not need a wide scraper tail to clean out efficiently. A larger tail causes dead spots in the mixer which increases the mixing time, or reduces homogeneity of the mix. Another manufacturer’s attempt to give fast cleanout is to use a descending scraper blade. This is both unnecessary in Sicoma mixers and elaborate, giving higher maintenance costs in those that use them. Sicoma’s planetary is well designed and simple in concept, reducing future headaches and costs.
